The Child Center and the Adolescent Center are two nationally recognized treatment centers which provide a unique blend of intensive psychiatric care combined with education, experiential therapies and strong family involvement.
Clinical expertise treating children
Peter M. Lake, MD, medical director of the Adolescent Center, and Cuong Tieu, MD medical director of the Child Center are board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists who practice full time at Rogers Memorial Hospital.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for children and teens
Evidence-based treatment is led by our board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists. Our experienced, compassionate staff works together with families, school professionals and health care providers to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets each child’s unique needs.
Bradley C. Riemann, PhD, is an internationally recognized expert in the assessment and treatment of children with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and other anxiety disorders. He leads a staff of behavioral specialists who are specially trained to work with children and teens who suffer from social anxiety, school avoidance or other related issues.
David M. Jacobi, PhD, is a behavioral specialist and clinical supervisor who works primarily with pediatric residential patients in the Child Center. He has researched OCD and its effects on children and their families.
The active involvement of family members helps to ensure the successful transition back home. Staff members work with the family to anticipate issues that may arise after discharge, and then help the individual and family develop a plan that best meets the child’s continuing recovery needs. At Rogers, we understand that families are an essential part of treatment.
Our treatment team also connects with school professionals, so they have an understanding of the child’s diagnosis and how it may affect school performance. In addition, the child’s primary care and outpatient providers are invited to contribute to the development of the treatment plan and coordination of continuing care services.
Admission begins with a free screening
To begin the admission process, prospective patients and their families request a free phone screening that is reviewed by the program’s medical director to determine what level of care will meet the child’s needs. Our admission staff will work closely with you from your first phone call and provide the support and information you need to best help your child.
